    How effective is plaquenil for lupus


    I have been getting these horrible rashes and they are not related to sun exposure. I am starting to wonder if they are related to Plaquenil.

    Hi all, I'm living in Belgium, and corona is just starting to get pretty bad here. My sister-in-law, who is a doctor, told me that they are treating corona patients with plaquenil. I'm not saying it protects you all the way, but it seems to be effective enough to be implemented in hospitals here. I hope this brings some comfort to you guys! Hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil is a drug that is classified as an anti-malarial drug. Plaquenil is prescribed for the treatment or prevention of malaria. It is also prescribed for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and the side effects of lupus such as hair loss, joint pain, and more. Three anti-malarial drugs are prescribed for lupus symptoms. Hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil is the most commonly prescribed because it is generally believed to cause fewer side effects; chloroquine Aralen has a reputation for more serious side effects.

    I've always been one to go for the natural route and am starting to feel like I should just stop taking everything and see what happens - so frustrating. My doctor now wants me to start on Chloroquine instead of plaquenil.
